Management support is terrible

Management plays favoritism, manipulates the schedule for those that are in their click and deliberately sees to it your life will be difficult you're not in their click. Process coaches and upper management need to be audited, but corporate doesn't care, they're all about money.

Pros

OT is available

Cons

Pay is low, no parts, no support, no planning and management favoritism

Productive and Fun

Innovative place to work. You have the chance to change jobs frequently (every 2-3 years). Learn new skills, great company culture, and exciting products.

It was fun

It was a great job they take care of there people. A lot of work a lot of physical labor your going to go home sore, but it was worth it occasionally when our hours weren’t shorted .

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

They will steal your soul and destroy your body, then kick you to the curb half way to retirement.

The short supply and need for laborers in a dingy factory with low starting pay in relation to others who preform the same work if not easier work, while under union representation that has largely sold out to corruption and lining their own pockets, provides for a low quality workplace culture with management that delegates many of their responsibilities to line workers who do put forth the effort in attempt to stand out above their peers. Literally the more potential that is shown as a line worker the more that is expected of you. Attempt to level the playing field after you come to terms with the game and prepare to make their list.

Pros

Top out pay and benefits among the best for non skilled no degree required labor

Cons

Sacrifice mind, body, and spirit for the attainment of the pros.

Very productive

Ford is a good place to work. If you can handle the local politics. As with any large corporation, it speaks for itself.. in terms of its impressive magnitude and exceptional logistics. My cons would be that the people dont stick together as they should. Its pretty much everyone for themselves, unless you are fortunate enough to make a true friend or two. Which does help if you are looking for a long term career, but it wont make or break a person that is goal oriented and focused. It is repetative, but there are several different areas of involvement. Stay busy, dont get lazy, and set some goals. You can have a comfortable future.

Pros

Overtime = time and 1/2

Cons

Management

Good work life balance

Great work life balance. Expect a lot of pointless meetings and hot air though. I worked on prototyping features which was a lot of fun. As a contractor, I was moved around a bit. Nearly every manager I dealt with was clueless.

Hard work and decent pay

Assembly line job is hard. But you will make decent money after a few years. Good benefits. You will be on night shift or weekends. New employees get the worst areas and jobs. Seniority based.

Great Company

Only Career job you can get without a degree that I know of. Some jobs are repetative, and boring. Some are more challenging and make the day go by faster. Managment can sometimes suck but I assume all companys have that problem.

Pros

Great pay

Cons

Some jobs are to repetative. They try to make them work but some jobs just have to be done
